Claiming Equal Citizenship Campaign
Women’s right to equal citizenship is guaranteed by the majority of Arab constitutions, as well as by international law. Yet across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region and the Gulf, women are denied their right to nationality – a crucial component of citizenship. Such laws send the message that women do not enjoy a direct relationship with the state, but must access their citizenship rights through mediation of a male family member, such as a father or a husband. Until women in the MENA and Gulf regions are recognized as full nationals and citizens, they cannot participate fully in public life, nor claim the other rights to which they are entitled as equal members of their societies. Please lend your support to the campaign. Send a message of solidarity to WLP campaign partners who are coordinating the national and regional campaigns to raise awareness of the issue, advocate for change, and mobilize support to modify discriminatory legislation.
The International Violence Against Women Act
The International Violence Against Women Act (I-VAWA) is a historic and unprecedented effort of the U.S. government to take leadership in establishing an overall and integrated approach to respond and address violence against women and girls internationally. The Act establishes a Coordinator to Combat Violence Against Women Internationally. The time is now to capitalize on this awareness and support and to enact this comprehensive vision to address the problem of violence against women.
Help End Women's Poverty: Support the GROWTH Act
The Global Resources and Opportunities for Women to Thrive (GROWTH) Act would address some of the most critical economic barriers women that keep women in poor countries from earning an income, barriers such as unequal property rights, lack of access to credit and trade, and poor wages and working conditions.
For the GROWTH Act to be passed, it needs concerned citizens to urge Congress to support it. Send an automatic letter to your Senators and Representatives asking them to support the bill.
